Who’s up for shots?

shots this weekend @PeakLife

From quick ideas for fun and fruity mixes to drinks with a nice amount of spices, there’s a shot for everyone and every party.

The ritual of taking shots is one that can form a communal bond, break the ice and get the party going. While straight vodka, tequila, and whiskey are the common shot orders, there’s a wide range of spirits that can be taken as shots. Nothing gets a party started like a tray of shooters. Luckily, for you here’s a list of kickass shots that are a must try.

  1. Sangrita

This spicy drink is usually served neat beside a glass or snifter of neat tequila. It is a traditional Mexican drink which does not contain alcohol, but rather it is a simple mix of juices and spices that is designed to be consumed alongside your tequila, alternating sips, cleansing and brightening the palate as your drink. It’s sweet, spicy and savory all in one little pony glass, and with tequila, the effect can be divine. It uses orange juice and grenadine base with a dash of hot sauce.

  1. Lemon Drop

It is a vodka based drink that has a lemony, sweet and sour flavor, prepared using lemon juice, triple sec, and simple syrup. It is described as a variant of Vodka Martini and is typically served chilled with ice. It is served in a stemmed glass with a sugared rim. A garnish of a sliced lemon wheel or a lemon twist is sometimes used.

  1. Cherry Bomb

Cherry-Bomb-Cocktail @PeakLife

It is a drink that packs a hefty amount of grenadine, hence the name. It is an easy, fruity and bubbly drink. But after the cherry taste hits you, chocolate follows. It’s not quite the flavor of a chocolate covered cherry. But it’s close. Enjoy a cherry bomb whenever you’re in a mood for something sweet, fruity and chocolaty- and fun. This is definitely not a drink one could describe as sophisticated, complicated or in search of a refined palette. 

  1. Washington Apple

  1. Chocolate Cake

It is a novelty shooter which combines the flavors of Frangelico liqueur, lemon, and white sugar to create the convincing impression of a chocolate cake. Sucking the sugared lemon tends to concentrate the flavors of Frangelico. It uses chocolate and Hazelnut liqueur to recreate the magical taste of chocolate cake in a cocktail.

Whether it is a night in the town with a group of friends, or that special someone in your life, ordering the perfect shot to suit the occasion is not only necessary, it is mandatory!
